The co-founders of LivelyHoods, ..., 12 Sept 2012 [cached]
The co-founders of LivelyHoods, Tania Laden and Maria Springer, have a long history together that made them as close as sisters.
The two were best friends through middle school and high school and they remained close while Tania went to Stanford and Maria attended UCLA.
After working with Kenyan street youth for two years, Maria asked Tania to leave her job with Morgan Stanley and work with her in Kenya.
After a few months, Tania and Maria decided to start a social enterprise - LivelyHoods - that would channel the natural sales ability of street youth toward a life of self-sufficiency.
