Liberian Vice President Jewel Taylor lent her voice Tuesday to demands for a probe into a U.S. educational charity after girls were raped at a school supposed to save them from a life of sexual exploitation.Last week, the U.S. investigative site ProPublica described how girls were systematically raped at the More Than Me Academy in Liberia's capital Monrovia.The charity had founded the school specifically to empower and educate local girls to save them from prostitution and sexual coercion.The rapes some of them perpetrated against children as young as 10 were carried out by the charity's co-founder, Macintosh Johnson, ProPublica said in a piece co-published with Time.After some of the girls came forward to reveal what was happening, Johnson was suspended by the school and arrested.
