The Greek Teachers Association (GTA) has constructed a cultural complex in Kalash valley in Chitral. The centre comprises a health centre, a museum and an educational centre. Kalash is a beautiful area where an ethnic group, called Kafirs of the Hindu Kush, lives in Bamboret, Ramboor and Birir valleys. Bamboret is a big valley while Ramboor and Birir valleys have small populations. Kalash people claim that they are descendants of the Greek and had settled down in Chitral valley of the Hindukush when Alexander the Great had invaded this part of the subcontinent in 327 BC.
