The Existence Project is a creative storytelling workshop in Victoria, British Columbia giving voice to whole communities – across the socio-economic spectrum – to create, connect and share around the common intersection of poverty, mental health, and stigma in our lives. Mental health, addiction and trauma are interwoven in a debilitating web of stigmatization, marginalization and poverty that impacts ourselves and our community on many levels. Understanding these social ills through our personal and community perspective is a crucial step towards creating meaningful dialogue and transformative action in making a safe, progressive and vibrant community.

The Victoria African and Caribbean Cultural Society (VACCS) was founded on October 19, 2012 by Pulchérie Mboussi. Pulchérie was born in Cameroon, in the beautiful continent of Africa.

Pulchérie's life-long commitment as an Ambassador of African and Caribbean culture continued when she moved to Victoria BC in 2010. This year, she needs the help and support of the community she now calls home.
