Visit the places that inspired
'Cry the Beloved Country' and the
early life of Alan Paton

Mafavuke House, home of the Ewing Trust Ltd., situated in Hillcrest, KwaZulu-Natal.

The Alan Paton Will Trust is managed by the Ewing Trust Company Ltd. It is their wish to make Alan Paton as popular as he should be, both locally and internationally. Cry the Beloved Country is indeed a book of sheer literary genius, but was not the only work procuded by Paton. By exposing all his works to students, young and old alike, it is hoped that the truth and compassion of Paton's writings will be embraced and studied for their literary beauty and life lessons.

The Charitable Division of Ewing Trust Company Ltd has a mission to provide a comprehensive service to Trusts, Foundations, Non-Profit Organisations and Public Benefit Organisations, by supplying the expertise, legal and financial knowledge that will enable each Trust to build for itself both core capacity and competency to fulfil the vision for which the charities have been established.

The Division has been in existence for 5 years and has had and continues to have success.

The Trusts and organisations that we care for range from educational, religious, social upliftment and social development organisations to conservation of our wilderness and oceans, including the development of previously disadvantaged individuals.
