This page provides an overview of the outcomes of the projects that have been undertaken by Chakra Interns. During the Internship, Interns are tasked to take a project idea towards some tangible outcome. Some participants did not create tangible outcomes that could be shared online. The participants are not expected to continue with the project beyond the duration of their Internship, however they may do so if they would like. Further details of the projects and the lessons learned can be discussed by contacting the Chakra Interns directly. For more information please contact info@chakrainternship.org
