Budapest Association for International Sports (BAIS) is a volunteer based, youth-led non-profit organization with the mission of promoting physical activity, active lifestyle, intercultural understanding, tolerance and participation through non-formal education. From 2015 to 2017, due to the lengthy legal registration procedure, 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 we were 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.
BAIS is based on young volunteers. Our volunteers are united in being active, sporty and open-minded personalities. We strongly believe that active young people can bring social change through the power of sport. We also consider sport as great a tool to promote active citizenship, mutual understanding, tolerance and democracy.

I got to know BAIS during their UNAPI project which was a very well organized program! We enjoyed every minute of it and while having fun, we learnt a lot!
For me the European projects of BAIS represent quality and guarantee good implementation. The trainers are very qualified and every day is interesting!
It was a fantastic experience to meet foreigners and locals in different sport projects through the framework of the association. My Erasmus experience has been definitely more active and enriching thanks to the staff of BAIS!
