"Ah, children, they are our future. We must invest in them, educate them. They are tomorrow's talent, they need our support."

"I have to drop the kids off at school this week, my wife is on a course, so I may be late. Is that OK, boss?"


'What a great boss!' 

"Just make sure you come in on the weekend to catch up!"


The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
