Minimum age is 15. In Egypt that is child labor which is illegal. Can this be revised?

Minimum age for Egypt is not 15 – it is set to 18. One of the questions in the eligibility criteria stipulates this – 2. Do you wish to submit a request for a grant for a project to create decent employment for youth aged 18 to 35? The minimum age of 15 is at Fund level (across the entire portfolio), but is adjusted to meet the local legal standards and requirements in each new country.
