This is not a matter specific to GitHub, but rather the underlying 
architecture, i.e. Git.

As Git had originally been designed just to manage the source of the 
Linux kernel, support for sub-projects hadn't been part of the design goals.

However, Git seems to have since grown not just one, not two, but three 
ways of managing subprojects; see 
https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/SubprojectSupport for some 
introduction.

I've never had much contact with these, and only one variant so far 
(can't even recall which ones; Submodules, I think, but I can't be 
sure), so I have no recommendation which of these will suit your needs 
best. But at lest it might give you a few buzzwords for further searches 
on the internerds.
