The grants aim to promote the share-giving culture of the Vietnamese people to the world, helping to backup materials for the museums across the country. It also helps the young generations can learn more about the old-age culture and tradition.

Such donations are recorded by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and The Vietnam Cultural heritage Association by giving him 2 campaign medals for “the course of cultural heritages” and many credits from many nationwide cities/provinces’ People’s Committees.
