Since its inception in 2021, the Jamaican Citizenship (By Descent) Grant Giveaway is an annual philanthropic initiative created and executed by ASHFIMON that targets 18-40-year-olds living in the United States of Jamaican descent. After realizing there is a hyper-niche community of like-minded individuals who are interested in connecting and reconnecting with their roots, in 2020, I collated my experience into a limited mini-series on how to apply for an assortment of Jamaican-based documents. Since then, not only am I an informational resource, but through my philanthropic efforts, I sponsor the Jamaican citizenship application fee for the selected grant recipient.
