As you approach Muhanga, look out for the big church of St Andre on a hill to your left. Just after this is the prison, its entrance tucked back from the road. After 30 metres there is a tar road forking off to your right; ignore this. Keep going on the main tar road. Look out for a FHI sign on your right 50 metres past the fork. Just after this is a Presbyterian Church on the right. 30 metres further on the left hand-side of the road you will see the Azizi Life sign. At the sign turn right up a mud road and our brown gates are a few metres up the track on the left.
