Dr. Jack's Visit to Kingston

2006 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecture

Education and Calcutta Rescue

Dr. Jack Preger

”One of the assumptions underpinning the work of Calcutta Rescue is that if you educate a woman, she will pass on that education to her family, and with luck, even to her husband!” Dr. Preger spoke about the efforts made by Calcutta Rescue in women’s education through health education in the clinic; through the slum, street medicine and village projects; through the education of clinic staff using workshops; and through their two schools and describe Calcutta Rescue’s attempts to educate the escorts of illiterate and difficult to motivate slum children attending their schools.


While in Kingston for the Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecture, Dr. Jack spoke at the Ban Righ Centre. He was also invited by the Rotary Club of Kingston, the Rotary Club of Cataraqui-Kingston, and by the Canadian Club of Kingston.
