11. Republic of the Congo – 1.106%

The Republic of Congo is estimated to have 49,200 people trapped in slavery, including many children exploited for sexual servitude, forced market vending, and forced labor in the fishing industry. The Pygmy people, a community that lives in the Congo’s rain forests, are known to suffer disproportionately, as they are often forced into debt slavery and refused basic civil rights and access to health or education.
