Budapest Association for International Sports

Budapest Association for International Sports (BAIS) is a volunteer based, youth-led non-profit organization based in the Hungarian capital. Our mission is to promote physical activity, active lifestyle, intercultural understanding, tolerance and participation through non-formal education. Between 2015 and 2017 we developed our activities as an informal group of young people under the name of International Sport Association of Budapest (ISAB). On 18 December 2017 our organization was registered as a non-for-profit association by the court of Budapest.

The primary goal of our organization is to promote physical acitvity, healthy lifestyle and participation in grassroots sport activities among young people regardless of their origin and social status. Our target group includes international and Hungarian students, young professionals and young people in general. Through the organization of recreational activities, youth exchanges and training courses we aim to create sport-based educational opportunities for young people and to strenghten mutual understanding and friendship among them. The secondary goal of the organization is to connect local sport clubs and grassroots initiatives with internationals living in Budapest and to provide them information about sport related events taking place in the city.
