During a visit to the KHI library in 2007 (organised by VVOB) Minister Guy Vanhengel, a Flemish-Brussels politician and at that time minister in the Brussels government, decided to donate 20000 Euro to allow the KHI library to update its book collection with money originating from the External Relations Directory of the Brussels-Capital Region.

On 6 August 2010, Gerrit Stassyns, the VVOB programme manager for Rwanda symbolically gave the last book of this donation to the KHI library head Ms Jeanne Lise GATERA with warm and sincere compliments on behalf of Mr Guy van Hengel and the Directory of External relations of the Brussels-Capital Region. At the occasion Mr Gerrit Stassyns also expressed special thanks to the Management of the Ikirezi Bookshop in Kigali who very professionally succeeded in collecting all these precious books from all over the world.
