THE BASIC BUILDER WORKSHOP

Building an EPIC Home for the first time? Before joining a build, you must first join a Basic Builder Workshop. There, you’ll learn the basic skills and safety training needed to build an EPIC Home!


How do I sign up for the Basic Builder Workshop?
After purchasing your ticket for this build, you will be emailed an access code which you can use to sign up for the Basic Builder Workshop.

View upcoming Basic Builder Workshops on our mission page.

Returning Builders who have joined a Basic Builder Workshop before do not need to join it again - see you at 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!
THE SPONSORS
This is a build made possible by the Government of Malaysia.

This build is part of the Project 100: Stage 2 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!
