    The “World Giving Index” is the first report of its kind looking at charitable behaviour across the world. Using data from Gallup’s Worldview World Poll CAF looked at three different types of charitable behaviour – giving money, giving time and helping a stranger and used the results to produce the “World Giving Index”.
    Australia and New Zealand topped the Index. Malta was found to be the country with the largest percentage of the population (83%) giving money, the people of Turkmenistan are the most generous with their time with 61% having given time to charity and Liberia was top of the list for helping a stranger (76%).
    The study also found that being happy is more of an influence on giving money to charity than being wealthy.




    India ranks even lower ( worse) than SriLanka,Pakistan&Bangladesh.If each of us gave a fraction of our wealth or time,it would transform India.

    Giving the most effective way is not trivial. Many charities have excessive admin costs. There are several internet sites providing that information. My only significant giving is to Army Emergency Relief which provides for US Army families in need.

    Oh, and I gave $20 to DFI :)
