Entrepreneurs should consider engaging in voluntary work overseas and share their skills with the less fortunate, according to the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO).Neera Dhingra, a spokesperson for the charitable organisation, says that business professionals with management skills can play an important role in the fight against poverty and adds that the average age of a volunteer is 41."The range of volunteers is wider than you might think. As well as the education staff and healthcare professionals, we also need business and management skills," she comments.She adds that there is a number of ways entrepreneurs can share their skills – from helping to develop small businesses in deprived areas, to teaching people how to manage land more efficiently.Since the VSO was established, 50 years ago, over 32,000 people have volunteered in 119 countries, with personalities such as Jon Snow, Kate Adie and George Alagiah lending their support to the charity.
