ABOUT Epic Homes

EPIC (Extraordinary People Impacting Community) is a multiple award winning social enterprise that designs and creates platforms focused on developing people through service experiences.

EPIC’s projects span from equipping the public to build homes for underprivileged rural communities to providing homes for flood victims, training to identify and collect data regarding the needs of residents and engaging in Master Planning for community development. We also provide volunteer management systems and are moving into leadership training to develop resilient outreach partners, participants and communities.

 

Impact

 

EPIC Homes has built over 86 homes across Malaysia. 

 

History

 

The inspiration came when John-Son Oei decided to help a needy family in a remote village back in 2009. Looking at the amount of work, he realised it was not an easy task and organised a project to recruit volunteers (through social media) to help and improve the situation.

As such, EPIC Collaborative became a platform that enables ordinary citizens to positively impact communities in a fun and easy way. Now, a multiple award winning social enterprise with a flagship initiative, Oei believes EPIC Homes will revolutionise rural development, where it is possible to meet both physical and emotional needs of the underprivileged.

“Little actions can accumulate into a big impact. That is what we hope to promote with Epic Homes.”
