Government has drafted the Multilateral Mining Integration Project (MMIP) that is expected to provide an alternative means of livelihood to the people who will be displaced as a result of the campaign.
According to Mr Amewu, the five-year programme will ensure that mining in the country are done in an eco-friendly manner.
The Catholic Priests said their campaign is also targeted at creating awareness about the environmental and health dangers of galamsey in the Central Region.
"We need to educate our members in the churches and mosques to also discourage the menace," Rev Father Paintsil said.
