Mission Description

Zurich Community Week x EPIC Homes Project

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 140+ 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 "Zurich Malaysia*. This event is exclusively open to selected volunteers where an exciting weekend awaits them! 


Date: 19th-21st July 2019
Location: Kampung Orang Asli Gurney, Batang Kali, Selangor
Transportation: Bus
Accommodation: Rimba Kalong


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!

  • I am blessed to be part of the team in building dream home for Abang Suratman, Abang Zeek and their family. I love the energy. I did not imagine myself doing this before but I can proudly say "I did it!". Mixed of hard work, sweat and fun (mostly). I had an amazing experience and surrounded by beautiful people who shared the same mission to help others. Thank you Zurich and EPIC. Namaste.

  • No regret on joining this mission, lots to learn and it's very meaningful. Using a sentence from 1 of our CEO, we are not only building a house, but is also building someone's dream.
