Road access was difficult and only one truck per month visited the area. In there were no stores, no schools, no clinics, no government feeding programs, no boreholes, and no resident civil servants apart from a few tribal appointees. All of these institutions are now in place and the Dobe people have been transformed in two generations from a society of foragers--some of whom herded and worked for others--to a society of small-holders who eke out a living by herding, farming, welfare, and craft production, along with some hunting and gathering. Ju villages now look like other Botswana villages.
