Nannies and House Helps in Kenya

House Helps in Kenya: Due to the dearth of employment opportunities, the high birthrate, and the long hours often worked by those with jobs, it is usual for most urban Kenyans to have a maid, often a very young girl, sometimes a family member, who is brought into town from the rural areas. She will be responsible for running the home, cooking the supper, and caring for the children.

More affluent households may also have an ayah, who is responsible for caring for the children (but who may cook, iron, and clean as well), and an askari, who is essentially a security guard, and who may be shared among a number of houses in a compound.

House Helps in Kenya – Upper and Middle Class Households

The upper echelons of Kenyan society (and the middle class is growing fast) may also have a cook, a gardener, and a driver. This situation is replicated in Asian and white households.

Many house helps in Kenya come from “up country, “particularly from Western Kenya, where they often own a small farm or shamba, which is run by their wife and where their children live. “Leave” and “travel allowance” is provided by employers to enable them to visit their families from time to time. Courteous, charming, hardworking, and hospitable by nature, the Kenyans are excellent staff members, both private and in the hotel industry.
