Grappling with predicaments such as unemployment, poverty,rights to education, health facilities and human settlement are the Zimbabwean young people. Being the Minister Of Local Government, Public Works and
National Housing, I would apply some effective measures to reduce these problems as shall be elaborated in the following essay.

Firstly, like in any other country, unemployment is a serious problem.
Bulawayo24 News says the current rate of unemployment in Zimbabwe tops
70%.This means, majority of the youth are not employed.As a Minister
Of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing I would introduce Public Works Programmes to combat unemployment, using policies such as, "Employment For All", in support from other ministries such as Ministry of Roads and Infrastructure.This could minimize unemployment and boost women rights since gender inequality is also in employment landscape.

Generally, unemployment and poverty are interwoven.Poverty is unemployment consequence.It is the greatest burden of the world and
Zimbabwe in particular.Poverty afflicts millions of people, the majority of whom are youth and women. Being a Minister Of Local
Government, Public Works and National Housing, i would introduce social policies taking poverty into consideration, the policy of
Social Welfare, Water Supply and Sanitation in line with the Zimbabwe
National Water Authority under a theme,"A better life for all".The theme should motivate young people. Reducing poverty does not only emancipate the youth but also reduces child labour, a prominent characteristic of village life in Zimbabwe.

    Running head: Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Structuralism James Price AIU PSY206 06 February, 2009 Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Structuralism I am going to discuss Humanistic theory, Psychodynamic theory and Structuralism. I will attempt to compare and contrast these three theories. The humanistic theory was headed by two psychologists, Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers (Humanistic Theory, 2002). Their goal was to understand the personality and to improve the overall happiness of their patients. This theory is one of most sought out as far as self help is concerned. There are four basic beliefs held by humanists. The first belief is that you must focus on the present, not to dwell upon the past or to look toward the future. The second is that one must accept their actions and consequences alike, whether good or bad. The third is to hold understand that one is not perfect and that their mistakes do not mean they are a bad person. The fourth states that the only way you can be happy is to attain personal growth and understanding. Then next theory I am going to discuss is one of the oldest theories, psychodynamic. This focuses on treating patients who have a mental illness and focusing on that to determine what may or may not be lacking. Those who believe in this theory base ones actions on their childhood and the parental effect on them. Psychotherapists tend to believe that an adult’s traits are due to whether or not the patient was able effectively getting through the psychosexual stage of childhood development (Depression-doctor.com, 2004). With their beliefs, mental illness is caused by their upbringing and their inability to get through their childhood. They feel that when this happens a person that has unresolved conflicts they form subconscious tendencies, such as OCD or being a perfectionist. There are treatments for these type of mental issues, or illnesses. Since these therapist are considered the best at listening and interpretation, they can see…

    Structural Theory

    Structural functionalism concentrates on the positive and negative functions of social structures. Societal functionalism is a particular type of structural functionalism that aims to explain the role of social structures and institutions in society, the relationship between these structures, and the manner in which these structures constrain the actions of individuals. According to structural functionalists, individuals have little to no control over the ways in which particular structures operate. Indeed, structural functionalists understand individuals in terms of social positions. For example, when the structural functionalists Kingsley Davis and Wilbur Moore discuss social stratification, they do not refer to individuals, but to the positions these individuals occupy. It is not individuals who are ranked, but positions that are ranked according to the degree to which they contribute to the survival of society. High-ranking positions offer high rewards that make them worth an individual’s time and effort to occupy. The structural functionalist account of stratification has been criticized on the grounds that there must be other ways to motivate individuals to occupy particular positions and perform certain tasks without such a disparate system of rewards."…

    Immanuel Kant’s “Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals”, argues upon the basis of morality introducing the ideals of the categorical imperative as the central concept of moral philosophy. The definition of the categorical imperative leads Kant towards the critique of pure reason arguing that without a goodwill one can’t even be worthy of being happy. Kant introduces goodwill, treating people as means rather than ends and doing the right thing for the right reason.…
