Hi Ben Hur,
We'd be thrilled for you to use and edit the curriculum. The latest
version is here: 
 We would love to see your adaptations for a Filipino class and
students (or for other localized efforts).
Please be aware, if you use these resources you should be careful to
ensure any added content is appropriately licensed. Unfortunately, we
have had multiple participants add content without appropriate
licenses. Without appropriate licensing we can not include any
enhancements you may add to the content.
Let me know if I can help in any way.
