Mission Description

Stabbers & Friends' Build

EPIC HOME BUILD
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 homes, addressing the issue of access to safe housing among marginalized communities.

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

THE VOLUNTEERS
This is a privately organized build made possible by the generous crowdfunding of a group of passionate volunteers and friends. This event is exclusively open to selected Stabbers & Friends. Volunteers will be taking part in an exciting build and come together as a strong team to impact not just one family but an entire community!

VOLUNTEER LOGISTICS
Date: September 15-17 2018
Location: Kampung Orang Asli Sungai Lalang, Semenyih, Selangor
Transportation: Volunteers will be self carpooling to site & accommodation 
Accommodation: Semenyih Ecoventure
Note: Volunteers need to attend a Builder Basics workshop at their convenience prior to the build

OUTCOME
We hope that throughout the build, volunteers will develop a deeper understanding of the how the Orang Asli live and that volunteers put themselves in the shoes of the community. In all that we’re doing for this trip, we are building a closer relationship with the Orang Asli and also strengthening the relationship and team dynamics amongst the volunteers as well.

ATTITUDE
Do talk to the family. Have a great conversation and leave a positive lasting impression! They are usually very shy, especially the women, and they may be a little hesitant to approach you in such a big group. Be friendly, strike up a conversation and have a great time! Always smile as emotions ripple out to the people around us! Be open to new things as different communities work in different ways and volunteers could even learn a thing or two!

  • It is always a privilege to build and an added joy to build with friends. So this build was a real pleasure. We did remarkably well considering the weather and everyone put their heart into their tasks.

  • Wonderful experience building a home for abang Zamairul & family alongside so many friends who are also returning builders. Can't wait for the next long weekend to do this again for another family.

  • It was great building again, everyone gave their best. We took it a step further and raised the funds ourselves which makes us more involved with the process. Kudos to the committee for seeing this from idea stage through the end. Definitely back for more!
