STA Mutual Sdn Bhd

Having catered for the welfare and interests of STA members and built STA’s own building – Wisma STA, the late Dato’ Sri Dr Lau Hui Kang, STA Chairman from 1986 to 2002, felt that STA should redirect some of its interests and resources to providing more financial assistance to the poor rural communities, forest workers, and under privileged children.

STA Mutual Sdn Bhd (STAM) was formed on 22 April 2002 to handle all welfare and socio-economic activities directed at helping communities residing within timber concession areas to overcome their financial needs and to provide scholarships to deserving students pursuing courses related to the forestry and timber industry.

It was officially launched by the then Chief Minister of Sarawak, YAB Pehin Sri (Dr) Haji Abdul Taib Mahmud on 16 May 2005.

STAM has been providing STA Scholarships and STA Prizes to students in various universities since 2005. Financial assistance has been given to schools, non-profit organisations and some other associations, as well as for implementing projects for communities residing in the vicinity of timber concessions. STAM also assists Daiken Corporation to manage the Daiken Scholarship.

All activities carried out by STAM are in accordance to its objectives, which are as follows:

  • To develop and improve the welfare of communities in Sarawak, irrespective of race, religion or creed, and
  • To provide scholarship, sponsorship and any other means to qualified and eligible Sarawakians for tertiary education and any other training beneficial to the forest and timber industries in Sarawak.

STAM has been providing STA Scholarships and STA Prizes to students in a number of local universities since 2005. Financial assistance has been given to schools, non-profit organisations and some other associations, as well as for implementing projects for communities residing in the vicinity of timber concessions. STAM also assists Daiken Corporation to manage the Daiken Scholarships fund.
