Children’s animated series ‘El mundo de Pau’
Pau, the protagonist of the strip, is a 9-year-old boy with Down syndrome who lives with his sister and parents in a neighborhood in the city.
He attends an inclusive school and has a gang of friends with whom he will live great adventures. Her extra chromosome makes her see the world with different eyes, “a pure, clean and crystalline look”, explain those responsible for the production.
This is the magic of ‘El mundo de Pau’ : despite his limitations, Pau will overcome difficulties and leave us a lesson in each episode.
A more inclusive society from childhood
The Asindown Foundation has been in charge of coordinating the content of the series, with the aim of adding an educational component and supporting ‘El Mundo de Pau’ to become a project of inclusion, awareness and learning of coexistence for diversity .
