  • Always experiential/participatory (we only learn when we get our hands dirty)
  • Accompanied by play (we learn very fast when we having fun)
  • A learning culture prevails during the conduction of activities –never shaming, diminishing or judging
  • All interventions are framed by philosophy (clarification of the meaningfulness of the intervention, and how it relates to life) for the sake of clarity. All interventions are as far as possible directly linked to the most significant philosophies (meaning and cultural frames) of the participants (Christianity, Islam, traditional African religion mostly).
  • Interventions are scientifically informed by theories and scientific literature
  • All interventions takes place within a discourse of discipline (values, ethics and ground rules)
  • All interventions are explicitly purposeful (directedness)
  • Interventions are always goal orientated, with outcomes specified up front
  • Interventions are always explicitly structured/outlined/guideline(d)
  • The emphasis of interventions is on real change, which often require commitment to broader systemic structural cultural change (power structures)
  • The potential risks/demands of the interventions are clearly spelt out to participants
