In April 2011 ASK has been founded - The organisation builds bridges and has a lot to offer.
What sounds like a fairy tale has become reality. ASK (exchange in sports and culture) came out of nowhere and was founded in April 2011 by a few founding members with zero financial capital on a beautiful spring day in Basel.
Sabri Dogan, who is still the president of the organisation, wants to give people a chance to exchange ideas irrespective of their origin, religion, status, age, etc. The idea is that people who meet in an informal setting where they can pursue their interests and hobbies can create bonds and bridges to other people. Thus, prejudices are reduced.
ASK offer its members a wide range of cultural, educational and sporting activities against a small yearly fee of CHF 80.00 (Single persons) and CHF 100.00 (Family/Partners), most of those activities are usually free of charge and included in the Membership fee.
In the seven years since, ASK has been able to celebrate many successes. Among other things, the organisation was awarded the
"schappo" Volunteer Prize of the Canton Basel-Stadt after only three years.
But the biggest achievment is that already more than 250 members are faithful to ASK and can benefit from a wide offer.
ASK finances itself from membership contributions and donations and accomplished the impossible with an annual budget of approx. Fr. 20'000.00.
But the real capital of the association is the many volunteers. They make the internal process and the operational procedures for courses / events possible. The operation of ASK can continue to be carried out to this extent only through the great commitment of the helpers.
Also in 2018 there will be a lot to experience at ASK.
The board, is pleased to continue the organisation with your support and to create more unforgettable moments and beautiful hours for its members.
The Board of ASK wishes all members a lot of fun and bridge-building experiences!

In the coming months, ASK will again organize many events from which its members will benefit.
Whether it is the concert at which the two "Singing without Borders" choirs will perform or the "Christmas Festival" in December, where a supporting program (music, theater performance, choir, etc.) is performed or the funhall tournament in Liestal - ASK needs support , so that these "bigger events" also succeed.
We would appreciate if you could assist us with the catering, installation or administration of these events.
