Today kicks off National Reconciliation Week, which is dedicated to building positive, respectful relationships between Australians and celebrating First Nations culture.

It’s a fitting time to celebrate the incredible work of the Stars Foundation and for a fourth consecutive year, The Lott by Tatts NT is proud to donate $100,000 to help the foundation improve health, education and employment outcomes for more First Nations girls and young women.

Since its launch in 2015, Stars has grown from supporting 285 young women in the Northern Territory to currently empowering and mentoring 3,400 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women in 62 schools across Australia.


“Stars focuses on education because this is the foundation for First Nations young women to seize opportunities to learn, earn and lead,” Stars Founder and CEO Andrea Goddard said. 

“The empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls through education can deliver significantly improved economic, health and social outcomes – not just for the young women themselves, but also for their families, wider communities, and future generations.

“This generous funding means that together we are working towards a future where there are tangible education and employment pathways for First Nations young women across Australia, while also working toward a gender equal future.”

Our Partnerships Manager Liz McPherson said The Lottery Corporation took pride in supporting communities in the Northern Territory through organisations such as Stars.

“Education plays a vital role in creating new opportunities and building more resilient communities and we are committed to ensuring more First Nations girls and young women have the greatest chance to thrive,” she said.
