Project aim

We aim to build a sustainable house for an underprivileged family living in Peninsular Malaysia.

What's the problem we're trying to solve?

Halfway across the world, in Peninsular Malaysia, approximately 12,322 families currently are living in unsafe housing. These living conditions can affect livelihood, health and education of individuals. Therefore students from the University of Birmingham and Taylors University have teamed with EpicHomes to build a sustainable home for one of these indigenous families. We aim to build more than just a house with four walls and a roof - we want to make them a home and make a difference.

Why do we care about this?

We believe everyone has the right to live in an environment that is safe for them and their children. Families are forced to live in inadequate sanitary conditions and minimal weather protection, leading to illness and other physical dangers.

How will the money be spent?

The money you donate will be used in supplying the building materials required to build the house. There are no labour costs involved since a large group of volunteers and engineers will be involved in building the sustainable home.

When will supporters see the difference?

EpicHomes has already concluded many similar successful projects. The time taken to build the house on average is 3 days, due to a unique modular building system. We will keep you updated on the progress of this project on our website at http://epichomesgroup1.wix.com/building-a-home.
