Mission

& values

The Maison des Associations Internationales (M.A.I.) is a unique place dedicated to international associations, located in the heart of Brussels, capital of the European Union and NATO headquarters.

The M.A.I. believes in the strength of solidarity, collaboration and the collective, values ​​which are at the base of its creation. Its mission is to support international non-profit organizations by providing the logistical services necessary to their operations. It wishes to offer tailor-made and accessible services in order to make the international associations based in Brussels feel “at home”.

The M.A.I has a true sustainable development policy, seeking a fair balance between the social,  environmental and the economic dimensions.

Choosing MAI also means benefiting from a real ecosystem geared towards international associations, in particular thanks to partnerships forged with its two sister institutions housed in the same walls:

the Federation of International Associations established in Belgium (FAIB) and the Union of International Associations (UIA)
