KYOU

meaning: cooperate
協力 == kyouryoku == cooperation
協会 == kyoukai == association


The right radical is a tripling of 'strengh' (力). The left radical is 'ten' (十), acting phonetically to express 'gather'. 'Many (persons') strength' == cooperation. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Thirteen strong arms cooperating.'
