INGOs must prioritise local community initiatives

British people are among the most generous people in the world when it comes to the number of adults who have helped a stranger (51%), given to charity (71%) and volunteered time and services (29%). Globally we are ranked at number 17 out of 142 countries, joint with Ireland and only behind Denmark (#13) in Europe (CAF World Giving Index 2023).
