Kenya has been ranked as the most generous country in Africa. This is according to the World Giving Index that was released this week by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).
The research took place over 10 years and surveyed 1.3million people in 128 countries.
It focused on how people give their time and money to various causes they care about.
It also looked at the ease with which people help strangers who are in need.
Kenya was second after Indonesia as the most improved countries overall, having increased their index score by an average of 19 points each.
“In Kenya, more than half of people donated money to charity, while Indonesia now has more people helping a stranger than at any time in the last 10 years,” states the survey.
The report also identified a downward trend in donations in key countries with long histories of philanthropy and household charitable giving.
This includes the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland and the Netherlands where levels of individual giving are now lower than they were in the aftermath of the financial crisis.
The United States was ranked as the most generous country followed by Burma and New Zealand.
China was listed as the least generous country followed by Greece, Yemen and Serbia in that order.
