Build Epic Home 216 & 217 for Abdul Aziz's and Rohani's family. - Missions - Sedunia

Mission Description

Sponsored by the Government of Malaysia

This build is part of the Project 100: Stage 1 Campaign. Find out more on our website here.




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 200+ 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

Your ticket covers accommodation, food, personal accident insurance, and transport for the duration of the build (3 days and 2 nights). First-time builders are required to join the Basic Builder Workshop for pre-build training, and this is also included in your ticket.

THE VOLUNTEERS

This is a build made possible by the Government of Malaysia. This event is open to public volunteers where an exciting weekend awaits them!
Returning Builders who have joined a Basic Builder Workshop before do not need to join the Basic Builder Workshop again - see you at the build!

THE BASIC BUILDER WORKSHOP


If you are a First Time Builder, you must join a Basic Builder Workshop before you join this build. Please view the upcoming dates for the Basic Builder workshop below or on our mission page. Upon purchasing your ticket for this build, you will be given an access code to sign up for the Basic Builder Workshop. 

Mandatory for all first-time builders, this 1-day workshop teaches you the basics of tool usage and safe handling to prepare you for the build.

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!
