Build an Epic Home EH187 for Lingser & Family - Missions - Sedunia

Mission Description

Build an Epic Home EH187




EPIC Homes is EPIC's flagship initiative that aims to build trust and relationships with marginalized communities in order to create cooperative, resilient and sustainable communities through the simple act of building home - addressing the issue of access to safe housing among marginalized communities.

EPIC strives to equip individuals to be able to engage with communities, build trust and relationships via participatory processes in research, planning & implementation with the facilitation of socio-technical & domain experts. Through this, shared experiences are cultivated, which heightens the community, external supporters & overall awareness of our inter-relationships and interactions within the space we occupy.


  We have Built 150+ Homes.

 We have a builder community of over 5,000 volunteers.

  We have worked with over 10 villages across Peninsular Malaysia.

  An EPIC Home only takes 3 - 5 days to build!

THE VOLUNTEERS

This is a public organized build. This event is open to public volunteers where an exciting weekend awaits them! 

THE LOGISTICS

Date: 24th to 26th December, 2022 
Location: Kampung Orang Asli Serigala, Hulu Bernam, Selangor
Transportation: Carpooling 
Accommodation: Homestay 


THE OUTCOME

We hope that throughout the build, volunteers will develop a deeper understanding of how the Orang Asli live, and that volunteers put themselves in the shoes of the community. We're essentially building a closer relationship with the Orang Asli community whilst also strengthening the relationships and dynamics of your team!

THE ATTITUDE

Approach and talk to the family! Strike up a conversation and leave a positive and lasting impression. They are usually shy, especially the women, and they may be a little hesitant to approach you in such a big group.
Be open to new things as different communities tend to work differently. Who knows? You could even learn a thing or two!
