Asia Centre Training Hub to Enhance Capacity in Cambodia

Asia Centre’s Training Hub will enhance capacity in Cambodia by undertaking research and implementing customised training programmes for community organisations, government agencies, media organisations, non-governmental organisations, and universities.

The Centre will deliver its capacity-building activities by: undertaking evidence-based needs assessments; design training programmes and curriculum, provide trainers to deliver ‘train-the-trainer’ and end beneficiary sessions; track the delivery of training programmes; and produce training evaluation reports.

In order to undertake these activities in March 2024, Asia Centre established its Training Hub at the Toul Kork district in Phnom Penh. This area was chosen to ensure the Centre’s operations are close to the community, as Touk Kouk is home to NGO offices, government agencies, and universities.


Asia Centre (see Google map) is located at Floor 15B, Time Square 3 Building, Tuol Kouk, Phnom Penh. It is an end of corridor corner unit that is triangular in shape with full-length glass windows on all sides, with a net floor area of 75 square metres. 

When approaching the office from the elevator, visitors will be able to spot from afar the Asia Centre logo on the door and as they approach closer the engraved door handle.

The office interior is designed using a white, grey and black colour palette and is divided into four distinct sections:

1) the Entryway; 2)  the Working Area; 3) the Meeting Room; and 4) the Discussion Room.

The Entryway is a long passageway connecting to the main office area. On the left side, the Asia Centre logo and a plaque showing its Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council are displayed. On the right of the entryway are full-length glass windows overlooking Toul Kouk district and Phnom Penh, which continue around the entire office unit, providing excellent natural lighting and views. 

The Working Area is an open-plan 4 desk system with individual drawer units and ergonomic office chairs. All desks have integrated power points for electronic devices, including individual HDMI, USB and USB Type-C outlets. There are built-in wall shelves and cabinets for storage and a wall-mounted Smart TV to display information for collaborative discussions.

The Meeting Room is located close to the left of the workstations. It offers a large conference table and seating for up to 8 people. It is at one end equipped with a Smart TV and video conferencing equipment for on-site and remote meetings, and one the other end a set of built-in cabinets. In between the cabinets, the Asia Centre logo is strategically placed to be seen during video calls.

The Discussion Room is located at the triangular corner end of the unit. Like the other rooms, this room also has a Smart TV with video conferencing equipment. It has a roundtable and seats up to 3 people and is suitable for one-on-one discussions and calls. Its all around view makes for an excellent natural backdrop during video calls.

Towards the end of the working day when the day turns from dusk to evening, the ambience in the office also changes, as the panoramic view surrounding the office ushers in the sunset. The strategically placed ambient lighting correspondingly illuminates the office during this time providing a comfortable and warm mood as the Centre winds down for the evening. 

Starting April 2024, Asia Centre has been receiving existing and potential partners at the office  and has had discussions to explore opportunities for collaboration in Cambodia and in the region.
