The commission takes into consideration several factors before classifying an area as hardship. The following are conditions that qualifies a place as hardship zone;

  • Lack of or unavailability or inaccessibility to food,
  • Inadequate transport and communication network,
  • Limited basic social services and amenities,
  • Persistent harsh climatic conditions like flooding, landslides and drought,
  • Insecurity and high possibility of security threats.

From the aforementioned conditions, hardship allowance is therefore paid in an effort to compensate for the cost of living for teachers working in areas designated as hardship.

It is increasingly clear that teachers working in hardship areas face a myriad of challenges; from lack of water, flooding to hostile living conditions characterised by constant spates of attacks.

Hardship allowance is paid on a monthly basis and varies from one grade to another. For teachers in grade B5 which is the lowest and the entry grade for teachers in primary school, they are entitled to a hardship allowance of Ksh 6,600 per month.
