My Kingdom for a Wrench

We visited a village called Trankite which was about an hour drive, including a river crossing, and an hour hike.  When we got there we found someone had distributed biosand filters to at least three of the residents.  Unfortunately 2 of the 3 were leaking from the pipe at the base and so the residents had stopped using them.  I tried to tighten the fitting but did not have the tools.  It reinforced the need to provide people in the community who can monitor and troubleshoot these interventions.
