EPIC (Extraordinary People Impacting Community) is a social enterprise that aims to inspire, mobilize and empower people to make positive impact in their communities. EPIC designs and creates collaborative platforms that allow the public to do this in a fun and easy way.
Our flagship project, EPIC HOMES, is an initiative that aims to build relationships through the act of building homes for underprivileged Malaysian communities. An EPIC Home can be built within 3 days with a team of ordinary people. To date, we have built 34 homes with companies and the public alike, creating a community of over a thousand builders.
John-Son Oei, Founder/CEO
A graduate of Mass Communication & Media Management, John-Son has made a commitment to revolutionize the way we think about tackling social challenges, where he believes “mass numbers of people engaging in tiny purposeful actions” is key to sustainable social change. Not willing to conform to the status quo he strives to go beyond the ordinary to play his part and help make the world a better place. This passion has led him to being selected as Regional Dean and Trustee of The Awesome Foundation, Malaysia’s official flag bearer for the 2012 Commonwealth day in the presence of the Queen Elizabeth in conjunction with the Queens Diamond Jubilee, recipient of the KLue Blue Chilli Award 2010, and Tatler’s Nokia E7 success circle in 2011.
