On the date of 26 December 2004 largest disaster of the century has striken the Aceh region of Indonesia. In this “Gate of Mekkah” and together with neighboring countries around 500,000 people lost their lives. More than half of that figure were Achenese. City has become unrecognizable. Not long after the disaster, a group of volunteer Turkish teachers and entrepreneurs have left their work and arrived in the region. There were really a lot of things to be done in the region. And one evening from across the oceans arrived an airplane carrying unnamed heroes who would change the destiny of thousands. They came with the aim to build a school, and yet the one of the best schools in the world. They contributed and shared everything they had, in order to construct this home of education, named as Fatih Bilingual School (FBS). Within short period this school has become a pride of the Aceh region with outstanding achievements in national and international Olympiads. The reliability it earned has even prepared the ground for Teuku Nyak Arif foundation to cooperate in launching another school – a girls’ school in Banda Aceh. These schools are now annually visited by hundreds of guests from al around the world.
