It is a period where most towns and villages of the Kwahu Traditional area hold colourful durbars and town hall meetings to call attention to issues affecting individuals, families, and the development of the Kwahu Traditional area as a whole. Fund raisings activities are also a major aspect of the occasion. Funds are raised to assist new and ongoing projects aimed at uplifting the traditional area.
