• The intervention cycle at SMC

      An intervention passes through a series of different phases. Different organisations use 
      different words for these phases, but most organisations follow the same broad phases. 





    Reporting / Closure

       It is a cycle because the phases lead into each other and often must be repeated during 
       the intervention. In development work, the people we seek to serve must be fully involved 
       and participate in all the different steps of the intervention cycle. Marginalized and vulnerable 
       groups are extra important to involve in the different steps.
