SUPPORT TO BUILD A HOME IN MALAYSIA

EPIC HOMES : BUILD A HOME

+ PROJECT SUMMARY

The Architects League Build, in collaboration with EPIC Homes (Extraordinary People Impacting Communities), is an initiative to gather the architectural community to build a house on 21st June 2018 for a needy indigenous family in the rural area of Serendah, Malaysia.

+ WHO ARE WE

We are a group of 30 volunteers comprising mainly architects, architectural designers and students who have as our mission an aim to improve the quality of life people through architectural works.

As architects, we are sometimes so immersed in our work designing for paying clientele that we forget to question how we can use our skills to benefit people who need our help but cannot afford our services.

With this awareness and intention to contribute back to the needy in the community, we gathered the like-minded volunteers from the architecture field to initiate this project.

+ WHO ARE WE HELPING?

We aim to collaborate with EPIC homes, a non-profit social enterprise in Malaysia to build a house for an Orang Asli family in Serendah, Malaysia.

Through this project, we aim to provide a better living environment for the underprivileged communities, and to empower them by engaging them in the building process to acquire new skills for living.

HISTORY OF THE PROJECT

EPIC Homes (http://epichome.org) 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.
