Jared Lowry fell in love with Colombia when he lived there for two years as a missionary when he was 19 years old. Years later, he started taking small groups of friends on humanitarian trips to Colombia and Guatemala. While planning one of these trips he came across La Fundación in Cartagena, Colombia. After visiting the school he knew he had been led there for a reason. Inspired by what he saw at the school, together, he and his friends Brad Pickett and Nathan Berrett created the Just One Foundation.
