Kazakhstan is in the 66th place in the World Giving Index (WGI) compiled by British Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), the official website of CAF Russian reports.
The total of 135 countries was included into the list this year. The WGI is based on data from Gallup's WorldView World Poll which is an ongoing research project carried out in all 135 countries that together represent 95% of the world's population.
The Giving Index has three main criteria:
- donated money to an organization
- volunteered time to an organization
- helped a stranger, or someone they didn’t know who needed help.
Kazakhstan is in the 87th place by the money donations criteria, in the 64th place by the number of helped people and the country reached 26th place by the number of volunteers.
The United States is a WGI leader in 2013, followed by Canada, New Zealand, Myanmar and Ireland. The Top10 of the index also includes Great Britain, Australia, Netherlands, Qatar and Sri-Lanka.
Russia is in the 123d place, Ukraine has the 102nd place and Belarus is in the 93rd place. China, Croatia and Greece round out the list.
The World Giving Index was created by the Charities Aid Foundation, using data gathered by Gallup, and ranks around 150 countries in the World according to how charitable their populations are. The Charities Aid Foundation claims that WGI is the largest study ever carried out into charitable behaviour across the globe. The first edition was released in September 2010 with New Zealand, Australia and Ireland emerging as the three most charitable nations. The survey found that across the globe happiness was seen as a greater influence on giving money than wealth.
The Charities Aid Foundation is a registered UK charity that provides services and assistance to UK and international charities and their donors, as well as promoting donation to charity generally.
