Mission Description

SUN Epic Homes Build

This is a private Build. Only invited volunteers are allowed to join this 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 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 130+ 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!


This is a privately organized build made possible by a group of friends. This event is exclusively open to selected volunteers where an exciting weekend awaits them! 


Date: 10th-12th August 2019
Location: Kampung Orang Asli Gurney, Batang Kali, Selangor
Transportation: Carpooling
Accommodation: Ontok-Ontok, Serendah


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!


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!

  • - After 2 years of not building, coming back to the village has really given me assurance about what i'm doing in life. The act of building a home is not just putting a roof over a family, but it is providing a private 'zen' space for them to grow, for their relationships to prosper.

    I highly recommend that anyone who is / is not up for an adventure, go take part in something as meaningful as this!

    Also, it's only for 3 days, so it is very suitable for families who wanna do a weekend activity together, or companies which have CSR activities that their employees wanna do!
