Hi-Tech South Africa
A while ago, our founder, Gita Carroll, was invited to take part in Hi-Tech's “Inspiring Real Adventures” video series.
Gitas passion is driven by one central question: How can we, as humans, do better? And this is exactly where the roots of TGM lie, getting businesses and individuals to make the conscious decision to help their communities.
Thanks to this phenomenal woman, The Good Machine is helping both for-profit and nonprofits navigate the new world of social impact and are bridging the gap between the two.
When she’s not out trying to save the planet, Gita can be found free diving in the African Kelp forest or running on the Fynbos slopes of Table Mountain.

Our team is driven towards one single purpose – to restore a tomorrow for life on Earth. All over the world, we are witnessing the disappearance of nature as a result of human population growth, rampant development and destruction of ecosystems.
These are the very same systems we rely on to provide food, energy, medicines, clean water and air to all life on earth. Biodiversity loss is lining up to be one of the greatest man-made crises ever.

The MathMom is also required to make herself available to assist in schools in other ways.
She is equipped in various ways to build meaningful and purpose-driven relationships in the classroom as well as in the community. We invest in her personal growth to enable her to become a role model for the learner and in the community. We aim at building relationships among the MathMoms within which they can experience belonging and mutual support.
The MathMoms are mentored in every step of the way by retired teachers who are strong and enthusiastic individuals. Our Mentors do not merely want to improve the teaching of maths, they also want to improve parental involvement in schools because we believe that strong communities build strong schools.
