Meet the team: Matome C. Modiba

Matome is currently studying for a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. His interest in civil engineering is on transportation engineering, and he hopes to contribute to the convenience that public transport offers.


He is interested in education, specifically on the psychology, philosophy, and policies around education systems. His goal is to help bridge the gap in the quality of public vs. private school education in South Africa. He also hopes to educate a generation of entrepreneurial young people who will contribute to the country’s economic development.


Matome plans on taking the 3C’s of GiLE and see how the youth can respond to them through the initiatives GiLE has to offer. He plans to learn about how he can incorporate them into everyday education that teaches life skills.
