Indonesia has been noted as the most generous country in the world.
In a comprehensive study conducted by the Charities Aid Foundation, Indonesia came out on top as the world’s most giving people across all categories.
Since 2010 the Charities Aid Foundation has conducted a comprehensive worldwide study to establish the World Given Index. Indonesia has now come out as the world’s most generous country for an impressive six years in a row.
Millions of people across the world take part in the survey and share their giving habits. This year, citizens from 142 countries took part in the survey.
The World Giving Index results are calculated on three factors, if a person helped a stinger or someone they didn’t know, donated to charity, and volunteered their time all within a month of taking part in the survey.
The world’s most generous countries are Indonesia, followed by Ukraine, Kenya, Liberia, and the United States.
In sixth place is Myanmar, followed by Kuwait, Canada, Nigeria, and New Zealand completed the top ten.
Ukraine is the highest climber in 2023, jumping 13 points since 2022. Indonesia has been uncontested for the last six years, and for many tourists who have visited Bali, this news will come as no surprise.
Tourists who have visited Bali just once or many times over the years almost always cite the kindness, generosity, and humility of Balinese people as one of the biggest joys of their vacation.

Data collected by the Charities Aid Foundation showed that in 2022, 4.2 billion people around the world gave money, time, or assistance to someone they didn’t know.
This equates to 72% of the world’s adult population and is certainly a reason to maintain hope for the future.
Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populated country, with over 277 million people living over the 17,000 island archipelago. Whether you travel in Bali, Jakarta, the jungles of Sumatra, or the beaches of Lombok, Indonesian people are giving people.

Findings from the Charities Aid Foundation World Giving Index suggest that religious people have a higher giving index.
This makes sense for Indonesia and Bali specifically. Indonesia is the world’s largest majority Muslim nation, and Bali as a majority Balinese Hindu province, has faith and spirituality at the very forefront of day-to-day life.
Unlike in many parts of the world where conviction of faith and religion is dwindling, in Bali, faith and spirituality are still at the core of every decision.
Speaking to the Charities Aid Foundation about the 2023 survey results Gusman Yahya from Filantropi Indonesia said “The contribution of philanthropy is crucial to bridging the financing gap in achieving the sustainable development goals, and to mitigating the effects of climate change in Indonesia.”
“By engaging in co-creation and collaboration through the Indonesian tradition of ‘Gotong Royong’, (or the joint bearing of burdens), we can bring stakeholders together to create a better impact for society.”
Bali’s generosity is something that has been reciprocated by many tourists over the decade, especially Australian tourists. Bali and Australia have a particularly special relationship.
In times of crisis, Bali lovers from Australia have stepped in and stepped up to help their Balinese neighbors, friends, and holiday helpers through hard times.
This lasting and largely open-hearted relationship between Australian tourists and Bali is confirmed time and time again when travel data is published.
Travel data from October 2023 was revealed on Friday 24th November and showed once again that Australian tourists are the most frequent international holidaymakers on the Island of the Gods.
The central statuses agency shared arrivals data with a one-month delay. Friday’s figures show that of October’s international arrivals, 122,285 were Australian tourists, followed by 35,967 from India and 26,051 from China.
