On October 26, 2021, the ICT center whose mission is to give a fair playing field to Breman Brakwa-Kokoso Islamic JHS students to compete with their colleagues in other big cities, was commissioned.

"I decided to build this facility when it dawned on me that even the basic school I attended many years ago and the entire Breman Brakwa Community lacked an ICT center to teach students who will write the same BECE on ICT as their counterparts in Accra and other big cities," the kind lawyer told YEN.com.gh.
