Kristina is a fierce advocate for the physically challenged in society and thus serves as the chairperson of the National Fund for the Disabled of Kenya. Her service to the less fortunate and physically challenged began in 1975 when she joined the Ministry of Education when she was appointed as the founding Director of the Department of Special Education. At the ministry, her main legacy was the establishment of the Kenya Institute of Special Education (KISE) in a bid to train special needs tutors.
In 1977, she was appointed Africa's ambassador to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Two years later, Kristina was awarded the Kenya Society for the Mentally Handicapped award for her efforts toward the physically challenged in society. Congratulations to her.
