A slim majority of the world’s adults (52%) say they have confidence in the charitable organisations and NGOs in their respective countries, while 32% say they have none, according to a Gallup survey.
The top five countries where people expressed the highest confidence in charities and NGOs spanned a range of geographies and levels of economic development and were Malta (79%), Rwanda (76%), Iceland (75%), Mauritius (75%) and the Philippines (74%).
The bottom five countries where people had the least confidence were Russia, Peru (both 29%), Colombia (28%), Greece (25%), and Bulgaria (24%).
In the UK, 62% of the adults asked said they had confidence in charitable organisations and NGOS with 30% saying they did not, while 8% didn’t know.
Overall, the study found that people living in low-income countries expressed slightly more confidence (57%) in such organisations than both the global average and those living in high-income countries (52%).
