Ghana has been ranked the seventh most charitable country in Africa and 38th in the world according to the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)’s World Giving Index.

The most charitable country on the continent was Kenya, which was ranked 11th followed by Liberia 17th, Sierra Leone 20th,  Nigeria 22nd, Zambia 32nd, Uganda 35th and Malawi 36th.

The most generous country in the world over a decade of CAF World Giving Index is the United States of America with a score of 58%.

This is followed by Myanmar in second place and New Zealand in third place.

In the category of helping strangers Liberia came up tops in Africa.  

Helping strangers is one of the three criteria the UK-based Charities Aid Foundation used to draw up the overall index of generosity.

It also looked at how much money people donate to charity and how much time people give to volunteering.

The index was based on a 10-year study that surveyed 1.3 million people across the globe.

They were surveyed over a period of time that included the depths of the financial crisis and its fallout, brighter times as the global economy began to bounce back and into more recent moments of geopolitical unrest.
