"Building bridges through Sport."
Budapest Association for International Sports (BAIS) is a volunteer-based, youth-led non-profit organization with the mission of promoting physical activity, healthy lifestyle, intercultural understanding, active citizenship and participation through sport-based non-formal education. The organisation has 2 branches, one focuses on local activities and the other one is working on international cooperations like Erasmus+.
With our local activities, we mainly focus on internationals living in Budapest, but our events are open for everyone who wants to spend their free time actively in an international setting. We organise hiking, kayaking, ultimate frisbee, caving (and a lot more) events which are all led by our members and they are open to the public. We have long-term cooperation with Budapest Hikers also, which gives us room to organise hikes not just in Budapest but all over Hungary.
Our primary goal is to make physical activity most accessible and enjoyable for everyone, this is why we like the name – We Move Budapest.
In our other branch, we create learning and mobility opportunities through the organization of sport and recreational activities, youth exchanges, seminars and training courses. BAIS is the leading Hungarian NGO in the field of Education through Sport (ETS).
BAIS has been realizing Erasmus+ youth and sports projects since its foundation. Our expertise involves Education through Sport, social inclusion and active citizenship through sport and education for a healthy and active lifestyle. BAIS is a reliable sending organization that has delegated over a hundred youngsters and youth leaders to various international projects.
