World Giving Index 2019: India ranks 82nd, United States Tops

According to the World Giving Index 2019 (WGI 2019), India was ranked 82 among the 128 countries surveyed by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), an international organization that promotes giving to transform lives and communities across the world.

According to the World Giving Index 2019, the USA topped followed Myanmar, New Zealand, and Australia.

According to the World Giving Index 2019, others include the top ten countries included Ireland, Canada, UK, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.

India at 82 on the index falls below Nepal (53), Pakistan (69), Mexico (73) and Brazil (74). At the bottom of the list are Yemen, Greece, and China.

The average figures for India over the past decade show that 34 percent of people helped a stranger, 24 percent donated money and 19 percent volunteered or donated their time. But India’s ranking may not be representing the complete picture since much of the giving here is informal and may have been missed by the survey.
