She then motivated other religios congregations especailly of South Asian Countries to join hands to combat this heinous crime - Human Trafficking. She then invited members from Talitha Kum Rome to come to India and motivate various congregations to work together. Sr. Jyoti Pinto BS was the first President of AMRAT too. Since then every year there is a Annual General Body Meeting held in different States of India which is attended by 80 – 100 religious sisters majority from India and other South Asian Countries.
