Mission Description

Building 26 toilets and 21 Bathrooms with the Kg. Hulu Tamu Community - Week 9

*ONLY SPECIALIST AND EC SLOTS AVAILABLE*

* PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WEEK TOILET BUILD REGISTRATION IS FULL AND CLOSED as we have volunteers from Asia Works Sdn Bhd.  Do join us for the upcoming latrines builds. Thank you. *

EPIC has been working with Kg. Hulu Tamu community since 2010, building 33 homes over 6 years, building relationships between residents and builders so that they support each other and find new, creative ways to exchange skills and knowledge. The residents have requested for more assistance in helping them build the remaining toilets & bathrooms, that they will exchange the service by sharing their skills/craft/an experience. Please note that we are working this arrangement out with the village, and the dates are subject to villagers' confirmation and sufficient number of volunteer registrations.

The build began on the 23rd April and will be ongoing for several weekends (Most villagers are only free on Sundays) until all the toilets and bathrooms are complete.

Registration for the 20th August build is now open, in which we will assist 2-4 homeowners in building a toilet each. Each team will be guided by the homeowner, a Local Coordinator, an EPIC Specialist builder and an Experience Coordinator, who will be exchanging skills in building, in managing the team, as well as in engaging with the community.

This week we'll be joining a diverse group of 20-30 people from Asia Works,  a life training program which focuses on empowering the community, so tickets are very limited!

Please register for the weekend that you are available. Join multiple weekends if you can!

To Note:

  1. COMPULSORY: Volunteers are required to have undergone the Builder Basics Workshop and are encouraged to join the Community Engagement Training.  More info is in EPIC DNA page. You can register for the Builder Basics Workshop on 5th August through http://bit.ly/2uBtLOX.

  2. Mission Briefing will be conducted on Saturday before the build at The Collective, No. 20 Jalan PJS11/18 Bandar Sunway. The Specialist will set up a Whatsapp Group to arrange with you the convenient time, either before or after the Builder Basics Workshop. During the Briefing, we will share the agenda of the day, sort out groups and meet each other.

  3. Bring along RM50 to cover lunch & carpooling. This is just an estimate, but it shouldn't go beyond this. If you are feeling extra generous, you can choose to use the balance for subsidising villagers' lunch & participation!

  4. You are required to wear a safety helmet during the build. If you do not have a safety helmet, you have the option of either purchasing the helmet alone or the Builder Kit that consists of a helmet, gloves, a toolbelt, and poncho from us. We will make the arrangements during the Mission Briefing and on the morning before the build. 
    Builder Kit: RM32.00
    Safety Helmet alone: RM14.00

Other notes:
Wear sunblock
Dress comfortably (shorts, sports pants and a t-shirt)
Wear proper shoes (no slippers!)

See you soon!
