The research team would like to express sincere thanks for those who answered the online questionnaires and agreed to meet the research team for interviews. Their stories of disadvantages and advantages, and feelings of joy and sadness have enabled us to fully understand the reality of the life of associations in Vietnam. We are aware of our certain limitations in disseminating all what they shared, but, we are convinced that their openness has helped us complete the research.
