ANGOZA was established in 1992 and registered under the Land Perpetual Succession Decree in 1993. It was later (in 1996) granted with a certificate of compliance under the Societies Act of 1995.  It was established by 12 member organizations and therefore set the record of being the first NGOs network in Zanzibar. ANGOZA can be regarded today as having established itself as the main umbrella organization for Zanzibar CSOs during the last few years. The total number of member organizations has been growing steadily, and currently has about 230 members, 50 of them are from Pemba.
