About the solution

Paulo lost his legs movement, and, gradually the disease affected his respiratory system. Since then, he depends on machines to stay alive.

From his hospital bed, Paulo learned how to read, write, finished his highchool and learned a lot about computers and software. We won several devices, made friends and invented his own machines.

Being a cinema lover, Paulo started working on an animated series. That’s how he created “The Adventures of Leca and His Friends”, an animated series that features Paulo’s own adventures in the hospital.

The creator explained his purposes to Folha de São Paulo: “By telling stories of our own lives, I want to make kids understand that a handicapped person, in a wheelchair, is not so different from the others”.

So far, Paulo has written over five different stories, and is trying to get is project financed trough crowd funding.
