Missionary activity[edit]

The missionary Charles Studd built up an extensive missionary outreach based on his centre at Ibambi in Budu territory. He was buried there after his death in July 1931.[1] The missionary doctor Helen Roseveare built a combination hospital/ training center in Ibambi in the early 1950s.[2] The CECCA, the local branch of WEC International, operates a secondary school at Ibambi which serves as a college for primary school teachers.[3]
