    They need to pay some amount for administrative work and voila you own a piece of land.

      Ampe – Game Most Girls Play In Ghanaian Schools & Homes


      Ampe is an energetic driven game that originated from Ghana usually played by girls of school going age and at times grown women.

      This game is played by two or more people and requires no equipment.

      Ampaho – means ‘ to go apart’ – and this is directly opposite the Ohyiwa.

      They both jump and kick one foot forward, if the foot that is kicked meets that of the opponent in the same direction; then Ohyiwa wins and moves to the next person and to the next and it the same way if the foot the leader brings forward is different from the opponent, the opponent becomes the leader.
