Living in a small town is like living in large family of rather uncongenial relations. Sometimes it’s fun and sometimes it’s perfectly awful, but it is always good for you. Okroase is in the Eastern part of Ghana, a subrub of the Suhum Municipality has been blessed by mother nature with a quite a lot from a huge stretch of lands to fertile soil to river and so on.. Okroase has a population of over 4,500(four thousand, five hundred) inhabitants with a majority being youth. The main occupation for residents of the town is cocoa farming. Abiasua is a river that passes through the middle of the town. The river stretcha from Amanase through to Okoase and beyond. It serves as a habitat for acquatic animals most of which are cat fishes. It is believed that, if any of the fishes are killed or caught, a member of the community dies .it is a taboo to go close the river on Tuesday’s as it is said to be a day for the river goddess. Water form Abiasua is used for domestic purposes too. There’s something unique about the fishes that would leave you in awe. Upon seeing the river, one wouldn’t see the creatures in sight, until you drop anything edible into the river. The fishes rush for the bait in such a beautiful way. It is said, that if you truly want to prove to them aided by people you want help from, you must prove to them that you can develop without their aid with this,the natives and elders of Okroase have kn their own way without the helo from government develooed their tonw in so many ways
