The world’s most generous countries revealed
An interesting report was just released on the "World Giving Index 2016". The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) World Giving Index is a leading study on global generosity. Now in its seventh year, it provides a picture of charitable behaviour around the world. The CAF World Giving Index measures the average percentage of people in each country who donate money, volunteer or help a stranger. This year, 140 countries were surveyed, representing around 96% of the world’s population.
Some results are surprising:
Myanmar tops the CAF World Giving Index for the third year running, followed by USA and Australia;
The UK is the most generous country in Europe, followed by Ireland and the Netherlands;
Canada ranks second in the Americas and 6th in the world ......
