My experience with Cents of Relief has been AMAZING! Rina and Anup are highly committed to the cause, and take care to ensure that all programs greatly benefit the women and children. I can say with confidence that Cents of Relief has made a lifelong impact on many women and children in need!! They have gained an identity and self confidence - while learning basic hygiene skills, computer and English language training - many things that children in the U.S. wouldn't have to think twice about. The new burn victim program has great partners and is a very promising endeavor.

What makes Cents of Relief such an incredible non-profit organization is its unrelenting commitment to a women's issue that typically does not receive the mainstream media attention it truly warrants. Furthermore, the programs and services it provides serve as invaluable stepping stones towards creating more productive and impactful lives for the women and children caught within the vicious web of human trafficking. Finally, this organization is a shining example of the incredible and lasting impact that seemingly ordinary people can have when they are truly dedicated to their cause.

If you want to make a genuine difference in the lives of the poorest children in India, then this is the organization for you. The Board and volunteers are the most amazing people you have ever met - they have worked tirelessly since 2003 to provide education, access to health care, and lifesaving information on health awareness.

I co-founded Cents of Relief in June 2003 while at the University of Florida. Anup Patel, a friend at the time, was in India working with children infected by HIV/AIDS for the summer. We exchanged emails about his experiences and were wondering what more we could do. Together we created programs that Anup could deliver to the children during the summer. Upon his return we wanted to do more and began to do fundraisers. We used the money we raised to work with other non-profits in delivering the health awareness workshops we created and decided to form Cents of Relief to help on a larger scale. Anup and I are dedicated to Cents of Relief for life to help ensure that all women and children of the world can be safe from human trafficking and slavery!
