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.

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.
