Sarah Ferguson has been named a Global Ambassador in the fight against human trafficking.

Congrats to @SarahTheDuchess and @JeremyAffeldt for being named international Not For Sale Ambassadors to Combat Human Trafficking!! (sic)

The Duchess of York - who was previously married to Britain's Prince Andrew, with whom she has two daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie - has been appointed alongside baseball star Jeremy Affeldt by charity Not For Sale, which is working to eradicate the problem worldwide.

President & Co-Founder David Batstone tweeted: "Congrats to @SarahTheDuchess and @JeremyAffeldt for being named international Not For Sale Ambassadors to Combat Human Trafficking!! (sic)"

The duchess wrote on her own page on the micro blogging site: "Thanks to David Batstone and all @Not_For_Sale for the Global Ambassador role to combat human trafficking And to fellow champion @JeremyAffeldt (sic)"

Sarah - who divides her time between Los Angeles and her former husband's home at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park - has thrown herself into charity work recently.

She attended the 2011 Global Forum on Human Trafficking in California last month where she made a speech in front of a crowd including Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

She also made an appearance at a fundraiser hosted by billionaire Formula 1 racing heiress Tamara Ecclestone in London on Monday (14.11.11) in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
