ABSTRACT Today good actions are related to a more prolonged well-being than private conquests that have a momentary effect. It is believed that this discovery may have a very great application in terms of quality of life and altruism. Wellbeing is an important aspect of one’s psychological disposition and a mental state that helps a person to maintain balance, anchored in hope and optimism, even during the adversities of life. Altruism is referred to as acting out of concern for the wellbeing of others, without any regard to one's own self. The current study follows the exploratory research design to explore the association between altruism and wellbeing among adults. It is hypothesised that there will be a significant association between the variables. The study includes 202 adults consisting of both men and women. The sample is collected using simple random sampling technique. The tools used are Personal Wellbeing Index –Adult by Cummins et al (2013) and Adapted Self-Report Altruism Scale by Peter Witt and Chris Boleman (adapted version 2009, original version by Rushton, 1981). The results indicated a relationship between altruism and personal well - being. It also pointed out that personal well-being differed among gender.
