As of 2012, TSC had about 38 areas approved and documented as hardship.

 

Currently, the teachers teaching in schools located in some parts of the following counties receive monthly hardship allowances.

            COUNTY

  •  Garissa County

 

  •  Isiolo County

 

  •  Kilifi County

 

  •  Kwale County

 

  •  Lamu County

 

  •  Mandera County

 

  •  Marsabit County

 

  •  Narok County

 

  •  Samburu County

 

  • Taita Taveta County

 

  •  Tana River County

 

  •  Turkana

 

  • Wajir County

 

  • West Pokot County.

 

 

 

HARDSHIP ALLOWANCE

 

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, pays extra allowances (hardship allowances) to teachers working in areas classified as hardship. While classifying an area to be a hardship area, the locality must meet any of the following conditions:

 

>Lack of or unavailability or inaccessibility to enough and quality food,

 

>Inadequate transport and communication network or poor road network.

 

>Limited and insufficient basic social services and amenities,

 

>Persistent harsh and unfavorable climatic conditions like flooding, landslides and drought,

 

>High rates of Insecurity and a big possibility of security threats.

 

 

 

Hardship allowance on that note is therefore paid in an effort to compensate for the cost of living for teachers working in areas designated as hardship.

 

 

As stated above, teachers working in hardship areas face a couple of challenges; ranging from lack of enough and clean water, constant flooding to hostile living conditions characterized by constant attacks from bandits.

 

 

 

Way back in December, 2014, the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, SRC, reviewed hardship Allowances to be paid at a flat rate for all equivalent grades/ job groups.

 

 

The Commission however effectively abolished the pegging of the hardship allowance as a percentage of basic pay.

 

 

 

The list below summarizes the monthly hardship allowance rates that are paid to teachers working in hardship areas; per job group:
