Least generous countries in Africa 2018

The CAF World Giving Index looks at how and why people around the world give to charity. In this latest edition of the CAF World Giving Index, data were collected from 146 countries, which represents over 90% of the world’s population.

The report includes questions about three different types of giving behaviour, with each country ranked according to their answers to:

  • Helping a stranger
  • Donating money
  • Volunteering time

The Index questioned 150,000 people in 146 countries on whether they had helped a stranger in the past month, volunteered their time or gave money to a good cause as part of Gallup’s World Poll.

In this years’ edition, Tunisia scored lower than any other African nation, with a WGI score of 20% also of those questioned only 7% had given financially to charity in the last year. Mauritania was the second on the list, with a WGI score of 20% also only 37% of people questioned gave to charity last year, Togo, Congo (Brazzaville) and Gabon are also in the top ten least generous countries in Africa.

Methodology
To establish a rounded measure of giving behaviour across the world, the CAF World Giving Index relies on a simple averaging of the responses from the three key questions asked in each country.

  • Helping a stranger
  • Donating money
  • Volunteering time

Each country is given a percentage score and countries are ranked on the basis of these scores. The Index measures countries by proportion of population giving rather than how much they give.
