Extremely rare Apache configuration

Hello everyone,

I have the following situation: my company has a HTTP proxy server to
access Internet WWW sites. All browsers are required to use this proxy
because we all are behind a firewall. 

I am overseas and connected to our corporate headquarters through a very
slow satellite link. I can not give my users unlimited access to the
Internet through the proxy because of the limited bandwidth, which is
needed for more important tasks.

There are certain hosts in the Internet my users need to access, but again,
to do this they HAVE to go through the proxy.

What about this: set up Apache locally as a proxy server for my local users
and, at the same time, to have Apache contacting the corporate proxy server
to access Internet hosts. I know it sounds confusing and do not know if I
am understood...

Another way of putting it would be: can one proxy server be configured to
go through the another proxy server for certain addresses???

Any help will be very very appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
