Short Description: EPIC Hope is a collaborative platform that connects and empowers communities in Malaysia to get involved in building sustainable housing for the indigenous people.
EPIC Hope is a collaborative platform that connects and empowers communities in Malaysia to get involved in building sustainable housing for the indigenous people. By leveraging cloud technology, EPIC Hope makes it easy for anyone to contribute and positively impact society in a fun and engaging way.
EPIC Hope allows the community to easily identify a rural family in need and upload information to the app. The information on the family is then forwarded to appointed master builders who analyze the information and then decide if they will proceed with the project. Users of the app can view all approved projects in their area and decide if they want to fund the project or volunteer to help build. Once teams and managers have been established for a project, EPIC Hope creates a comprehensive dashboard for the managers of the team to easily organize and coordinate project assignments.
The app benefits the community in that it provides more indigenous people with a home and eases the process of building and managing a volunteer team. It also greatly reduces the time of the project to only three days to build a house, the results help attract more people in the community to become involved.
DreamX, the Independent Software Vendor who created the app, were inspired by the vision of EPIC Homes, which is to provide each and every indigenous family in Malaysia with a safe home. Through the EPIC Hope app, DreamX has leveraged the latest technology to help communities coordinate projects to improve housing for indigenous people. DreamX hopes to expand the app to address several issues in Malaysia such as helping endangered species and organizing project teams to help local charities.
