Andrew started his journey to bring 3D printing technology to undeveloped nations. His first destination is Berat, Albania. Albania is located in the Southern part of Eastern Europe and known as one of the poorest countries in Europe.

"We have collaborated with the "Printers for Peace" program set up by Dr. Joshua Pearce in Michigan (USA). Dr. Pearce is the director of Michigan Tech's Open Sustainability Technology Laboratory and building "MOST" RepRaps. He happily provided us with a MOST 3D printer kit to assemble with Albanians to create objects which will raise their standard of living. Dr. Pearce, we appreciate your support!" writes Andrew.
